    Nice! Dunno what it's officially called; I've always referred to it as the thunderbird mold (rightly or wrongly). Not many around.

    Ironically, the Thunderbird Hotel appears to have used HHR, SCV/LCV, Arodie, H-Mold, Small Key, Diamonds, and CIC BJ Diecar, but never that one.

    I spoke with Jim B about this mold when I saw him in Vegas in June. He called it the Thunderbird mold. They originally designed and had the mold made up. I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but it seems like there was a secondary company that also started trying to do a copycat mold, but they had failed. Also, there was some sort of legal battle with the Mexican government, which caused the collapse of another? company.

    If anyone wants a sample of this mold, let me know. I picked up about 130 chips on this mold.
